Based on a system of thought passed down for over 2000 years, the Jewish Strategic Framework uses Jewish concepts as the basis for strategic planning, operations, and decision making. This system combines modern strategic and management frameworks with the Jewish thought passed down about the Creation process, leadership, and strategy.
The synthesis of modern strategic understanding and Jewish teachings brings the ideas and concepts you value through a process that will lead to their manifestation at the right time, in the right place, and in the right way. The JSF is designed to bridge expectations and reality for individuals and companies. The JSF system identifies strategies for personal or company growth. For managers, it can determine specific objectives and key results for the coming iteration. The JSF system helps choose the tactics and maneuvers that will best achieve the desired future.
The JSF System includes five stages, each concentrating on specific aspects of strategic and operational importance. Each step is designed to guide decision making and determine particular actions in the next phase. These stages help delineate between strategic planning, operative management, tactical maneuvers, and engagement.
The JSF System for planning and operations uses ten strategic elements of Creation to learn about you or your company’s strategic position, identity, potential opportunities, risks, and more. In doing so, these elements come together to create a “Tree of Knowledge” establishing where you are in your creative process. This knowledgebase determines which strategic factors will be of most import in the subsequent iteration.
The JSF System is suitable for a spectrum of users. The JSF can help company manager and leader who wants to upgrade their present strategic position and operative reality. At the same time, individuals and entrepreneurs seeking funding for their projects or to improve their interpersonal relationships and creative processes can use the JSF to meet their specific needs. Additionally, team leaders can utilize the JSF to establish explicit tactical maneuvers and operations for the next iteration. Lastly, the JSF can be used by families or non-formal grouping to better plan, organize, and work together.
The JSF can be used to guide any creative process as well as help coordinate and plan any size event, prepare for upcoming meetings, or determine the best way to engage a challenge or opportunity – whether in business or personal life.
Additionally, the JSF system improves team cohesion and communication. Working with the JSF system establishes clear channels of communication – letting leaders and followers better understand their role in the creative process and organize mutual expectations for upcoming events. Improving team cohesion is an essential component of the JSF System.
As part of the strategic learning and development process, a company’s leadership engages self-examination to reconsider its relations with followers, partners, suppliers, customers, and others. Examining and understanding the needs of each group establishes present “power user” – “power receiver” norms that can guide leadership in shaping and revitalizing these relationships. Employees, partners, suppliers, and customers all benefit as leaders institute clear objectives and channels of communication – thus improving teamwork, synergy, and collaboration.
Interestingly, some of the people who have learned the JSF System have also used it in their homes. In a more personal setting – like a family – the JSF guides individuals through a process determining their position with their family and friends. This examination establishes concrete actions to improve those relationships. It can help get children “on board” and make them feel like they are part of a cohesive unit and team. For parents and couples, the JSF system can help align two people coming from distinctly different backgrounds to build a mutual identity that creates and reinforces trust and understanding.
